    If you’ve come to Singapore for a good time on a small budget, the Prince of Wales is for you. It’s equal parts hostel and bar and you “check-in” by asking the bartender. The dorms are on the second floor and separate from the public area, so no worries about customers stumbling in to your sleeping quarters! Dorms are basically one big area divided by curtains. The air-con is turned off during the day, but high ceilings and lots of windows keep them cool. Linens are provided and there are lockers for keeping your luggage safe. The bathrooms are better than what you’d expect of a bar, but still not for fussy travelers. If you prefer more privacy, they have two private rooms which share a separate bathroom and shower. There's free WiFi and you can cook your own breakfast in the beer garden each morning.

    The Prince of Wales Backpacker Hostel is the ideal place to stay for real fun – especially for youths. The hostel’s main selling point is its unique pub-centric theme. When one checks in to the place, one is immediately greeted with the comfort and excitement of the friendly and laidback nature of the hostel’s pub instead of a reception desk. Although the hostel’s rooms and dorms are not five-star hotel standards, they provide clean bed mattresses. Toilets are shared but private rooms get a separate bathroom of their own. Backpackers who stay here get free outdoor dining breakfast, free internet, free lockers and 50% discount for all meals from the kitchen - which is great! Entertainment is certainly provided as there are live performances almost every night! Overall, the comfort of the dormitories and the toilets are not so great for me, but the character of the entire hostel/pub makes up for it.
